A new tv show on Arabic channel, Fatafeat is screening a rather retro television series called ‘Mother-in-Law Bootcamp’.
The show pits young women against each other in a series of challenges regarding housework.
The challenges range from keeping a house clean, to milking a cow, de-feathering chickens and dealing with unruly children in a bid to win a house.
*They can’t be serious!?*
The show has three celebrity judges posing as mothers-in-law to judge the contestants
Because you know, all of us women aspire to have our housework judged by celebrities – live on television no less.
Head of content at Discovery Networks MENA, Nahla Elmallawany says the show offers a “fun and educational look into what can be one of the most stressful moments in a woman’s life.”
Yes, because women’s lives are defined by what their husbands and mothers-in-law think of them, and that’s what their existence should centre on. *queue eye-roll*
Surely women have more facets to them, for any show – than just how they keep a house and their getting along with the husband’s mother?
Well, apparently not for this bootcamp. You can catch this ridiculous show on Friday evenings at 10pm on Fatafeat.
Now, enough of this work malarky – I better go home and clean my house.
